Get Your Manual Aston Martin Orders In Right NOW

We surprisingly found 19 Vantages for sale equipped with the dogleg seven-speed manual transmission for those who prefer not to wait. Some of these are the 2021 final model year, while two are unsold copies of the limited-edition 2020 AMR model. With 2% of the 200-unit run AMR still available more than one year after it went on sale, it’s easy to see why Aston Martin is dropping the manual option.Customers clearly prefer the automatic, but we believe those shoppers will look foolish when the 200 AMR units sell for outrageous sums at auction in a few years from now. Remember the Ferrari California, the last Ferrari to offer a gated manual transmission? Only two were ordered, and they are now worth far more than any regular California with the dual-clutch transmission.
